Honduras' dismal FIFA World Cup build-up continued with a heavy defeat to Romania in Austria.

Winless since January after defeats to Turkey and Venezuela and draws with Belarus and Azerbaijan, Reinaldo Rueda's team were desperate for a boost ahead of their opening Group H game against Chile on June 16.

But they were 2-0 down by the interval, Daniel Niculae opening the scoring in the 20th minute before Gheorghe Florescu doubled the lead on the stroke of half-time.

A 76th-minute penalty from Mirel Radoi rubbed salt in Honduras' wounds, and they still have only two goals to show for their unsuccessful last five games.
